Fresh from securing a berth in the 2019 AFCON finals after beating Cape Verde 1-0 at Namboole, the Uganda Cranes will take on the Nigeria Super Eagles in an international friendly game on Tuesday.

A squad of 18 players travelled to Nigeria on Sunday morning but excludes the team’s captain Denis Onyango, Farouk Miya and Murushid Jjuuko.

Hassan Wasswa will for now be the team’s captain in Onyango’s absence.

The Squad
Goalkeepers: Jamal Salim, Charles Lukwago

Midfielders: Khalid Aucho, Moses Waiswa, Tadeo Lwanga, Ibrahim Sadam Juma

Nigeria also sealed a place in next year’s AFCON tournament after playing to a 1-1 draw with South Africa on Saturday.

Farouk Miya scored the solitary goal that separated Uganda and Nigeria in the last game the two sides met in 2015 at the Akwa Ibo Stadium.
